A few days ago I had the chance to stay in Venezia for four hours. It was the first time in my life, despite living in Italy and being almost forty. I’ve been waiting for this so long that I decided to shoot a video to remember this experience.
I tried to replicate the approach of the ancient travellers, meaning that I didn’t use a map and I simply walked around losing myself in the beautiful narrow alleys of the city, trying to capture the life of the natives and trying to avoid the tourist areas as much as possible. I must say that the experience was pure gold. Venezia is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities on earth, a place you’ll remember forever.
